I went to Che Lagarto in 2016 as part of a G-Adventures experience. I stayed here for two weekends in between living in a nearby favela.
I arrived alone in Rio but my luggage didn't! When I arrived at the hostel, they couldn't do enough to help me find it. They lent me their phones, spoke in Portuguese to the airport staff and searched online to help me - it was returned within 24hours and I was so grateful to them.
They arrange great trips, advise restaurants and are just helpful people.
Although the dorms can be loud at nights, mine was clean and for the money I was happy with my short stay.More
